Seizure Medications

Medications can be used to treat epilepsy, or seizures. Anti-seizure medications are also referred to as antiepileptic drugs or AEDs. Each medicine works in different ways, and some medicines work better than others to treat certain types of seizures. Keep in mind that if one medication treatment fails, another may be more successful.

Most of the following medicines do not actually “fix” the problems that cause seizures. Instead, they are intended to stop the seizures from ever occurring.
